One of the most important tasks as a business owner and manager is workforce management.
How can you be sure its time for you to bring on additional staff?
- When the majority of your employees seem overwhelmed and they’re letting you know that they have too much to do.
- You see an opportunity for growth and expansion in your industry but current employees aren’t able to take on the additional work and responsibilities.
- When revenues are at, or above, your target, and you project it to stay that way.
- Your employee’s existing skills and knowledge are fine for the moment but to expand; you will need additional resources and skill sets.
- Duties, Responsibilities and Tasks the employee must perform
- Expected standards of job performance and Job Title
- Reporting relationships – the people with whom the employee will report to
- Financial and Fiscal Understanding, as well as any spending limits they may be responsible for managing
- Standards of acceptable behavior and Working conditions
